The Middle East refers to regions around western Asia. Specifically, nations in the Middle East are centered on the Arabian Peninsula. The term Middle East can be traced back to the 1850’s. However, the term was not common until early 20th century when Alfred Mahan used it after realizing its strategic importance.
